Craggy Range Gimblett Gravels Syrah 2013


100% Syrah blended using multiple parcels from Craggy Range's Gimblett Gravels vineyard in the Hawkes Bay region.

Winemaker's Comments

Produced from the gravelly soils of the Gimblett Gravels, this wine has complex aromatics of boysenberry, black pepper, cedar, anise and garrigue herbs. The palate is beautifully poised with the richness and dark berry ripeness balanced with fine acidity and superb fine minerally tannins, finishing dry and long.
